Welcome to Tawa U3A

Tawa U3A is a group of people who are free during the day to gather for activities of interest.

We organise courses to teach subjects of interest like Art , Ancestry or Ukulele.

There are Discussion groups where you can express your point of view, and games both indoor and outdoor.

Talks are arranged on topics of interest like Health, History or Travel. We cooperate with other U3A groups and share sessions.

All up, we offer more than 50 learning and social opportunities at minimal cost.

You are certain to find some things that are of interest to you.  


You can email us - [email protected]

Rescheduling several ethical and spiritual courses

The Covid situation has thrown many U3A topics and courses into disarray, no more so than the courses originally advertised under ‘A World on the Brink’, Jesus’ Last Week in Jerusalem’ and ‘Considering Ethical and Social Situations’. The broad intention is now to list these under one Course title for the second half.

Please enrol if you have not done so for the "Considering Ethical..." course, even though you may not be able to come to all talks.

I'm very happy to be able to confirm the dates and venues for the speakers for this series of talks. - to express your interest please enrol for the series on the U3A website. Come to all or just to those you'd like to.
All talks will be held at Tawa Union Church, Elena Place. There is limited parking on a first come basis.
Time: 10am for tea/ coffee and socialising
Talk: 10.30-11.30am
Thursday 2nd July: John Howell - the ethics of climate change
Tuesday 28th July: Jim Cunningham - Exile, Plagues, and Covid 19!
Tuesday 4th August: Bruce Hamill - community ministry supporting social housing in south Wellington
Tuesday 11th August: Helen Bichan - "We could- but should we?"
Tuesday 18th August: Ian Harris -  Facing a world on the brink
Any queries please phone Karen Harris on 04 232 34 36, 027 230 7060, or email to  [email protected]

Coordinator: Karen Harris - 232 3436 or 027 230 706 [email protected]
